Comparison between refractory clay bricks and ordinary bricks

Refractory clay bricks are special bricks with excellent high-temperature resistance and are widely used in high-temperature industrial equipment. While ordinary bricks are usually a conventional building material for construction and interior decoration. The following is a description of their differences.

Ingredients are different

  1. Refractory clay brick: The main components are kaolin and other refractory materials, and the content of kaolin is relatively high, usually reaching more than 50%.
  2. Ordinary clay bricks: the main components are ordinary clay and other materials, and have no special fire resistance.

The use range is different

  1. Refractory clay bricks: suitable for refractory buildings such as high-temperature industrial furnaces, furnaces, stoves, chimneys, etc., which can withstand high temperature and chemical corrosion environments.
  2. Ordinary clay bricks: suitable for general construction and decoration projects, such as house walls, ground paving, fences, etc.

The production process is different

  1. Refractory clay bricks: high-quality refractory materials such as kaolin are used, and fired at high temperatures to ensure stable refractory performance.
  2. Ordinary clay brick: It is relatively simple to make, using ordinary clay and other auxiliary materials, and usually fired at a lower temperature.

Advantages and disadvantages of ordinary clay bricks and refractory clay bricks

Characteristics of refractory clay brick

refractory clay bricks

Advantages: It has extremely high fire resistance, can be used for a long time in high-temperature environments, and has strong chemical corrosion resistance.

Disadvantages: high cost, complex manufacturing process, limited scope of application, and cannot be used at room temperature.

Ordinary clay brick

Advantages: The production process is simple, the cost is relatively low, the application range is wide, and it can be used at room temperature.

Disadvantages: no fire resistance, cannot be used in high temperature and fire resistant environment, easy to deform or break at a higher temperature
